The domestication of plants is a coevolutionary process, involving the selection and human propagation of phenotypes of interest, which may result in morphological and genetic changes, distinguishing the domesticated plants from their wild progenitors. In the Amazon, species selection dates from the late Pleistocene and early Holocene, having at least 83 native plant species with popula...
The immediate consequence of forest fragmentation in tree species is the loss of genetic diversity due to the reduction in population sizes. In the medium-term, the small population sizes and the spatial isolation of forest remnants constrain gene flow and cause inbreeding. Small populations are also more sensitive to the loss of genetic diversity caused by genetic drift. Our study aims...
